Classic car reflections in Monrovia (R Nakano)

By Sean Spear This weekend will feature a milestone in Southern California car culture as the classic vehicle set takes over the entire Los Angeles Convention Center for a first ever multimedia event. In addition to a plethora of fully-restored beauties (collectively valued at over $137 Million), the show will include a unique Celebrity Theater that features some of Velocity Network’s biggest automotive stars, an auto ‘swap meet’, and a full variety of family-friend activities.
